The Ghost Had No Home

Thomasine Dye


The ghost had no home

Or people of its own

It blindly sojourned the Earth

Not knowing for what it searched

A seeker, it had always sought

A mourner, for it had all been for nought


Haunted by long dead dreams 

Old wounds bursting from their seems

It remembers little of life

But recalls many sights:


The Sea, dark and endless

Of Love, cruel and senseless

Alone, abandoned too soon

Panic, not knowing what to do

Apathy, doing nothing at all

Disgust, the last sight it saw

(“Like a dog! Like a dog!”)
